NAME

Lymphocytes

DESCRIPTION

Lymphocytes are white blood cells that have important immune functions. The main populations of lymphocytes are B cells, T cells and natural killer (NK) cells. They are typically (although not exclusively) associated with adaptive immune responses. Populations of novel innate-like lymphocytes were first described in 2010.
